  • Transcript

NPR's Melissa Block talks to NPR's White House correspondent Don Gonyea about what President Bush may say when he holds a rare, prime-time news conference. This comes as a U.S.-led assault against Iraq is thought to be weeks, if not days, away. Mr. Bush may use the news conference to further prepare the American public and world opinion for the conflict.
